CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Jay Bruce and Adam Duvall represented the Cincinnati Reds when they took to the field in the sixth inning of the 2016 MLB All-Star Game Tuesday.

In two at-bats, Bruce struck out swinging and Duvall grounded out to catcher and walked.

Bruce, now a three-time All-Star selection, replaced Cubs outfielder Dexter Fowler as an injury replacement.

Despite being surrounded by trade rumors, Bruce has put together an All-Star worthy resume to start the season. He leads the Reds in hits, RBI and is tied for the National League lead with six triples.

Bruce was also an All-Star in 2011 and 2012.

The All-Star selection was a first in Duvall’s Major League career and happens to come in his first full season with the Reds. 

“It’s a tremendous honor, for sure, just to be considered,” Duvall said.  “When I found out it was pretty exciting.”

Duvall is second in the National League with 22 home runs and is near the top of the league with 59 RBI.

“I just want to represent the club well, go out and play hard and have fun with it,” Duvall added.

Former Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto received start on the mound for the National League.
